Kody's Cookbook

A couple of years a go my mother and I made a cookbook for Kody. It had favorite family recipes that were used often and still are. The recipes were simple and uncomplicated. It is a book that every one now uses. The following posts are a few selections that we make often.

Play Dough

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoon cream of tarter
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons oil
3-4 drops food coloring

Mix the water, oil and food coloring together in a medium sauce pan. Add the remaining ingredients. Put it on the stove over medium high heat watching it and stirring, until it is a nice consistency. It will become very difficult to stir and clump together. At this point turn it out of the pan on to the counter and knead it. Cool and store in a sealed container or zip-lock bag to keep it from drying out. ( This is the first recipe that Kody helped me make when he was 3, it was in his preschool curriculum manual and he is now 14 and making it for his little brother.)
